Intro:
E A9 E E9 A E

E A  E
Hey...
E               A     
Sheets of empty canvas
      E                  A
untouched sheets of clay  
     E                 A      
Were laid spread out before me
      E             
as her body once did
E          A                E              A
All five horizons revolved around her soul  
A                      
As the earth to the sun
E             A                  
Now the air I tasted and breathed
   E            
has taken a turn
 C                                 E    
Ooh, and all I taught her was everything
 C                                 E     
Ooh, I know she gave me all that she wore
           D                 
And now my bitter hands chafe
  C               
beneath the clouds
                 E     
Of what was everything?
        D                      C              
Oh, the pictures have all been washed in black
              E       
tattooed everything...

E        A           
I take a walk outside
       E               A           
I'm surrounded by some kids at play
E                A           E             
I can feel their laughter, so why do I sear
 C                                 
Oh, and twisted thoughts that spin
       E                   
round my head  I'm spinning
        C       
oh, I'm spinning   
                             E  
How quick the sun can, drop away
           D                    C          
And now my bitter hands cradle broken glass
                 E     
Of what was everything?
        D                      C              
All the pictures have all been washed in black
              E       
tattooed everything...
        D                       C             
All the love gone bad turned my world to black
             D               C   
Tattooed all I see, all that I am
              E     D   C    
all I'll ever be...   yeah...

Bridge (repeating till the end):

E          D        C     
Uh huh... uh huh... ooh...
E                                          
I know someday you'll have a beautiful life
D                      
I know you'll be a star
   C                        E  
In somebody else's sky, but why
     D            C 
Why, why can't it be
                E    D C E D C E
why can't it be mine
